Since 1984, Island Press has been a trusted source of environmental information and solutions. We publish the best new ideas about how to protect the environment—and work tirelessly to spread those ideas to help people make a positive difference in the world. Each year, we publish 40 new books on such vital topics as conservation biology, marine science, land conservation, green building, sustainable agriculture, climate change, and ecological restoration. But we are much more than a book publisher. Island Press authors and experts inform and inspire change by reaching out to millions of people through the press, online, in the classroom, and in person. We host conferences, teach courses, and speak in the community on relevant environmental issues. Today, with more than 800 titles in print, an active slate of author programs and events, and a growing online presence, we have emerged as the nation’s leading publisher of books on environmental issues and a leading communicator of environmental ideas. All of this is possible because Island Press has helped to create a community of teachers, scientists, policymakers, communicators, and citizen activists who are passionate about sharing knowledge and promoting better stewardship of the natural world.
Island Press develops, publishes, markets, and disseminates books and information tools essential for understanding and solving environmental problems. Island Press believes that those working to protect biological diversity, conserve natural resources, and promote human health and quality of life from environmental threats must have access to the best multidisciplinary information available and early exposure to new ideas. We also believe in transforming science and evidence-based information into understanding and action. We want to help create problem solvers—not just the professionals of today, but also the next generation of environmental leaders. We measure our success not only by the number of books we publish and programs we support, but also by the degree to which we help new ideas and new voices emerge. There has never been a more critical time for the environment. For those who join with us, we offer a unique opportunity to actively engage the most pressing issues of our time—and succeed at making a difference.
